Sachsen-Wachsenstein Dragoons

Using a small batch of Miniature Figures Russian SYW cavalry, I've completed the Sachsen-Wachsenstein Horse Regiment by adding a squadron of 12 dragoons.  Along with the heavy horse and horse grenadier squadrons, these three squadrons make up the cavalry component of the small army of Sachsen-Wachsenstein.

The Sachsen-Wachsenstein Dragoon Squadron
The figures are actually Russian horse grenadiers but they are so similar to one of the Saxon dragoon regiments that I saw no difficulty in using them for Sachsen-Wachsenstein, a stalwart ally of the Imperium.  Their uniform is patterned after the Saxon Bruhl Dragoon Regiment.

Their addition now gives me five squadrons of battlefield cavalry for the Reichsarmeeabteilung Obere-Sachsen.

Saxe Marchen also has Dragoons in Mitres, it clearly is something to do with us all being located far from Saxony HQ :)

I alson had enough figures to do one squadron of Garde in Tricornes and one of Grenadiers zu Pferd, for a combined Garde du Corps regiment.
